Took me forever to find them...and when I did (at the H Mart Oriental Market), they don't seem to be the right thing. The reason I say this is the ingredients listed on the container of pickled umeboshi plums included MSG, fructose & sucrose. All the brands they had had the same ingredients. Anyone know where I can get/order ones without all that bad stuff? or does the benefits of the plum outweigh the nasty ingredients?
I agree! Im in the same boat! I was so excited to find the ume plums in my Asian market only to find out it has MSG! Dont want a daily dose of MSG... And my pickled daikon has ASPARTAME! ugh..........and to top it off, just made some fresh homemade musubi, only to find out my brand new wasabi has MILK in it! UGHHHH. I was so craving that wasabi too. =(
Shame on me for not reading the labels BEFORE buying! Oh well, lesson learned!
